Celebrating Nature in December

Even in winter we can find much to celebrate in nature. Our friendly robin greets us each morning looking for breakfast.

And many other garden birds can be seen at the feeders, or queuing up for them.

Most of the leaves have fallen now but even on the ground they still look beautiful.

Oak and beech leaves

Some trees, though striped of leaves, are covered in interesting lichens and colourful berries.

While many greens are gone others can be found – like this very healthy and vibrant moss.

Grasses and reeds, while brown, still have interesting seed heads

And on those calm bright winter days we can still enjoy that lovely winter light – even if its length is very short.

Winter too is a time of reflection, for remembering those gone before us, and thinking of those left behind.
